The Federation of American Societies of Experimental Biology has put together a slideshow presenting data on the education and employment of biologists and medical scientists. It shows an increase in the number of doctoral degrees awarded in biology since 1977, from just over 2,000 to more than 7,000, and that the proportion going to women has increased substantially. The PowerPoint also breaks down the employment of PhD by employment, with academic holding the largest swatch, followed by industry. There’s a whole lot more data, so take a look here.
